The donkeys in Mijas Pueblo

Mijas Pueblo is famous for its donkeys that transport tourists. The treatment of the donkeys has been criticized by animal lovers and organisations, and therefore the municipal management has drawn up new regulations to make life better for the donkeys. The new rules that came into force in 2020 can hopefully satisfy all parties. In any case, you can sit on the donkey outside the tourist office.
